LUGGAGE

Flights in Mongolia 

Be aware that very few airlines go to Mongolia, flights are therefore quickly fully booked, especially between June and September. Book at least 6 months in advance to have the best airfares. If your luggage has been delayed, the airlines do NOT deliver it in Mongolia, they keep it available in Ulan Bator. However, we can deliver it for you wherever you are if you have already started your trip.

We can do it for you at extra cost:
– 40 € for delivery inside Ulaanbaatar
– 80 € for delivery in Khustai
– 150 € for delivery in Khugnu Khan
– 250 € for delivery in Kharkhorin, the Orkhon Valley or Arkhangai
– 350 € for delivery at Lake Khuvsgul or in the Gobi Desert

 

This cost includes the driver & the vehicle for 1 or 2 days depending on the distance + fuel for the vehicle for the round trip + meals and accommodation for the driver if the roundtrip is more than 1 day.

For tours including a domestic flight, please remember that the baggage allowance on domestic flights is sometimes only 10kg or 15kg including hand luggage (depending on the companies)!

In all cases, keep in mind that you can experience the four seasons in one day anywhere in Mongolia and even in midsummer. So do not forget light clothing, but also warm ones and a windbreaker. 

If you choose one of the tent camp travels, you should bring your own sleeping bag.

Note:

1. You should rather take a small limp bag or a travel backpack, because it’s easier to shove them in the cars, on the horses or yaks’ back

VISA

VISA

The entry visa is required for many nationalities and must be obtained before departure. Check if your country has a visa exemption agreement with Mongolia, by contacting your local Embassy of Mongolia. Or you can request the visa from the nearest available country Embassy, if it's not possible to get it from your country.

Travelers wishing to visit China or Russia before or after their tour in Mongolia must obtain the necessary visa from the consulate in their home country. Indeed, it is so far not possible to obtain a visa to enter the territories of China and Russia at the border with both countries.

WEATHER

Mongolia is a landlocked country with 4 seasons and harsh weather. It can reach +30 degrees in summer and -30 in winter. A vast front of cold, heavy, shallow air comes in from Siberia in winter and collects in river valleys and low basins causing very cold temperatures while slopes of mountains are much warmer due to the effects of temperature inversion. Mongolia is high, cold, and windy. It has an extreme continental climate with long, cold winters and short summers, during which most of its annual precipitation falls. The country averages 257 cloudless days a year, and it is usually at the center of a region of high atmospheric pressure. Precipitation is highest in the north (average of 200 to 350 millimeters per year) and lowest in the south, which receives 100 to 200 millimeters annually. Rain, snow, wind and a lot of sun is just a common thing here. Can you believe it if I told you all the things we mentioned above can happen IN ONE DAY? Normal thing as well. You are coming to wild nature and wildlife. So expect wild weather as well. It might be a little dry than where you are from.
